no, wxSkin uses wxWindows license with an addendum.

From the README in the source
wxSkin.zip wrote:wxSkin is published under the wxWindows license <http://www.wxwidgets.org/licence3.txt>
with the addendum that you notify the author about projects using wxSkin (consider this "postcard-ware").

Re: Where to add headers and how does program flow go?

Apologies for asking fundamental questions. I'm not very proficient with wxWidget or C++ at all. First, I'd like to know how to add custom headers. fstream etc. Exactly the same as any c++ header. They go before anything they declare or define is used. I am guessing that maybe you don't have your i...

Thanks guys, I didn't know about KWIC and they may be useful in the future but don't think they are going to work for me in this project. I need something that is a cross between the angular meter and the angular regulator. I am sure I could derive something from one of them or in some other way mak...

Speedometer style gauge.

Hey all, I'm working on a client project and they want a speedometer style gauge to display a percentage. Does anyone know of a wx control that does this? I really don't want to write one from scratch. I've looked around wxCode and the code dump but haven't had any luck finding what I am looking for...

So, basically as I directly use the class members with wxWidgets controls (wxListCtrl to be exact) it seems I need the wxString, but would it be a good idea to derive wxString and implement a serialize(...) ? Not too sure what to do. Or maybe there is a way to use the boost version of string with t...

Looks like you aren't setting the command line description but using the default.

OnCmdLineParsed() is where you want to ch...

Not sure what the size of wxXMLSerializer is. The DLL for boost::serialization with all the debug info stripped from it is 800K. I'm guessing wxXMLSerializer will come in under that, so if it meets your needs its probably the way to go. IMHO, worrying about a total app size under 5M is a little exce...

yeap, shared means that wxWdigets will be linked dynamically at runtime in the case of windows as a DLL. Otherwise it is a static library that gets linked at compile time to the executable.

I don't get it : if it's a real and important issue to keep password secret and access to server private, why storing passwords ? ("If you wan't to keep a secret, don't tell anyone"). I think these are two totally opposite needs! I'm guessing because software is written for users. The users of the ...

That's a common question here. Do a search for application, dll or binary size

Also the wiki has an article on reducing application size. Some of which is applicable to the dynamic libraries.

I'm considering the following security treat: - Someone can just copy the config file containing the encrypted password to another computer running the same application. The application will internally decrypt the password and automatically login to the server. I though, using the win registry will...
